BJ Soriano to teach ukulele for the Parks and Recreation
Beginning Sept. 14, long-time ukulele instructor BJ Soriano will return to teach for the county Department of Parks and Recreation Culture and Arts Division once again. A beginner’s class will run for 10 weeks on Saturdays, 9 to 10 a.m. at the cost of $50. Music is provided, and a student only needs to bring an ukulele to class. Classes are held at the Culture and Arts classroom facility on Shipman Street. Interested individuals, ages 7 through adult, should call 961-8706 to register.
BJ began teaching for the County of Hawaii approximately 25 years ago and planned to retire early last year. However, realizing that she loved sharing how to play the ukulele with children and adults, she decided to return to teaching part-time. Prior to teaching for the County of Hawaii, she taught private and group ukulele lessons as well as having been the proprietor of BJ’s ‘Ukulele Halau. Currently, she teaches private lessons through the teaching studios available at Hilo Guitars and ‘Ukuleles music store.
